Cyrus 2.1.6 IMAP

Hello all

We are migrating from cobalt mail server to SLOV4.1/Cyrus IMAP 2.1.6

Our main problem is that Cyrus doesnt allow us to create new folders on the same level as the inbox folder (Which when exploring /var/spool/imap/user/username" is the root folder aka. the username folder.
Our old mail system allow this and our roughly 70 users all have an IMAP structure more or less like this:


Our new mail server want this:


(As viewed by Outlook express/Outlook)
Is there any way of reconfiguring the cyrus/SLOX4.1 to allow folder creation on the same level as the inbox folder?

The issue is around Outlook/Outlook express which is not default setup for using inbox -> sent-mail structure and then add the sent mail to the local sent-mail folder which our users is rather dissatisfied by

Any help will be highly appritiated.

I will be happy to supply extra infomation such as config files etc.

as the top indicates im rather "green" in the linux buissness

This was actually really simple...

The only thing we had to do was:

Edit /etc/imapd.conf

Add/change the line altnamespace

altnamespace: yes
(Standard is "no")
NB. pay attention to CAPS LoCK
